Makkah Water Company began operations and production in 1975. The main plant in Jeddah now has seven complete lines from Krones up and running. In its second plant, Al Janoub in the city of Gizan in southern Saudi Arabia, Makkah Water is still working with mix-and-match lines that include a variety of blow molders, fillers, and labelers from Krones. Whereas the Jeddah plant produces Safa water, the Gizan plant is focused on the Mozn brand.
In this project phase, Makkah Water had the existing wet end of an 81,000-bph line replaced with an ErgoBloc L. Later in the update project, the company then decided to swap out two more existing lines for Krones systems. Each of the three ErgoBloc L lines fills still table water at 81,000 containers per hour.
